With enough time and money, anything is possible.
A last generation MR2 is one of my favorite cars. Not sure I'd fit in it though. I like them a lot. I see huge potential in them.The old stuff is cool - but the contemporary stuff has so much more potential. K20 or K24 Honda set ups the current rage into, well, everything. 200HP or so stock and with minimal work - 260-280 at the wheels naturally aspirated; with turbo - 400-500HP not difficult at all. Local guy has a first gen MR2 with a K24/transaxle swap - from the front of the Honda to the back of the MR2. Turbo, ARP fasteners on bottom end; E85 - makes 490rwhp at 8800 rpm. Sounds otherworldly.....
Current motor is sohc, right? What kind of gains are you expecting?I watched that vid this morning Bob - they looked great! Slightly taller, but should clear.
Richard - non-US market 2TG - dohc 1.6L. But the block is the same as my 1.8L - so the topend will go on my bottom end.
